Sports Illustrated released a list of the top 100 college football players heading into the 2018 season and Washington RB Myles Gaskin made the list, coming in at No. 58.
Gaskin, a senior, is considered one of the best running backs in the conference and holds the Washington school record for rushing touchdowns (41) and total touchdowns (45). He was named second-team All-Pac-12 in 2017 and has three straight 1,000 yard seasons.
Here is what Sports Illustrated’s Chris Johnson wrote about Gaskin:
Washington lost its most explosive playmaker and leading wide receiver this offseason in Dante Pettis, and it also could have lost its leading running back. Instead, Gaskin decided to return to Seattle as a senior rather than jump to the pros. After notching a career-high 6.2 yards per carry and 21 rushing touchdowns in 2017, Gaskin will team with fourth-year starting quarterback starter Jake Browning in a seasoned backfield capable of supporting a Pac-12 title bid.
